Transitioning your call center from a typical “customer service” environment to a “sales” environment can be a challenging, however, in today’s competitive environment, it is critical to have everyone in your organization focused on upselling or cross selling products/services.

My topic of adding sales to your customer service culture will provide you with strategies for making this transition and ensuring your call center is a revenue generator for your company. These strategies allowed our call center to begin to pay for our own operating expenses within three months, improved the morale of the employees and providing more opportunities for all center personnel.
